Disney Counts Their 50 Animated Films

     November 24, 2010


Today, Tangled hits theaters and marks the release of Disney Animation Studio’s 50th film.  To celebrate the occasion, Disney has released a short video that counts all fifty films set to the song “Dreams” by Brandi Carlile.  I don’t know why they didn’t set it to a song from one of the animated Disney movies instead, but Carlile’s song works fine.  Hit the jump to check out the video.

And if you can’t name all the films by sight, here’s the list:

1.) Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

    I got goosebumps. Odd that they didn’t use a Disney song, but the one they did use works really well. What a legacy.

    “‘Song of the South’? WHAT ‘Song of the South’?” –Disney executives.

      “Song of the South” wasn’t released by Walt Disney ANIMATION Studios. It is a live-action film that features animated sequences.

      • Guest

        It was released, viewed by millions in theaters. But it was never released on VHS or DVD (maybe on laserdisc.) They’re embarassed about it and will never re-release it.

      • John C. Baker

        True. But the point is it’s not from Disney’s animation studios. Mary Poppins isn’t up on the list either.

    Congratulations for Disney.. lots of memories :’)

    Allison: Disney Animation Studio’s 50th film.

    Obviously the films you mentioned were made by different Disney studios.

  • Nigel

    What happened to Valiant? That was also a Walt Disney animated movie and I didn’t see it on the list. Did I miss it?

  • Jessie

    Valiant along with Toy story and Cars was a Disney Pixar film.

    • Lia

      Actually Valiant wasnt a pixar film, it is one of the incomplete disney movies, not quite sure what that is, but its in the same chategory as “the brave little toaster” “the wild” and the winnie the pooh films i think :) xx

    I have an original painting signed by Walt called Lullaby Times. I can’t find any information on this painting anywhere. Last time I was at the magic kingdom I saw a copy of the painting hanging in the hallway of first aid. This painting is 5 bunnies snuggled in bed. Can anyone help with the history of this treasure!! Please email any thoughts, it would be appreciated!! Jamieliz30@hotmail.com

    Why is “Dinosaur” part of this sequence?? It was made by The Secret Lab, a special division of Disney that made this film and then folded after making only one film (although per my memory of 1999 I think there was another film, “Wild Life”, that it planned on making after “Dinosaur”.) Until 2008, when disneyanimation.com was launched, fans agreed that “Dinosaur” doesn’t belong in the sequence, but it revealed in August 2008 that Disney officially includes “Dinosaur” in the sequence. I’ve been wondering why for a long time and no Internet site of any kind has been helpful revealing the reason (merely saying “it meets the criteria to belong in the sequence” isn’t enough info.)

    Amazing that it’s taken Disney 73 years (1937-2010) to produce 50 films.

    Still, certainly some brilliant films. Not all, but most are real gems.

    Will they do a list like this with their 60th film, I wonder?
    That list would also feature:
    Winnie the Pooh (2011)
    Wreck It Ralph (2012)
    Frozen (2013)
    Big Hero 6 (2014)
    Zootopia (2016)
    Giants (2016)
    Moana (2018)
    Three other films (2018, 2020, 2020 est.)
